Hello all! My name's Ben, and I am a total noob to all of this. I am in the process of building my first system and want to start overclocking! Overclock it all as fast as I can!!! Stable of course. Thus far I have bought my case, a Koolance Lian-LI PC4-1025SL, Corsair HX series 620w psu, and a Sound Blaster X-FI platinum sound card. I plan on getting an Asus P5W DH deluxe mobo, Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB Kit DDR2-800 XMS2-6400 Xtreme Performance Memory, ATI X1950 crossfire edition video card, Danger Den waterblocks for cpu, gpu, and chipset to start, and the cpu is up in the air. I was planning on going with the E6400, but am not sure if I should shoot for the 4M cache of one of the E6400's bigger brothers. Hopefully the wisdom of other members will help in this decision. Ram is also up in the air. Can't decide if I should go with somthing faster or overclock these sticks. I am really looking forward to learning this great art, and hope other members will be forthcoming with their experience and knowledge. Thanks, and hope to talk again soon.
